NASCAR great Jeff Gordon turns 40 on Aug. 4, 2011. The four-time Sprint Cup champ has collected 84 career wins since his debut at the Hooters 500 in 1992 and seems poised to add to that total in his fifth decade. Here, Gordon celebrates his victory in the 2004 Brickyard 400. The win made him the first driver to win the race four times. He has not won the race since, though, while Jimmie Johnson has won it three times in the past six years.
